What A Gal


This picture just kills me. I was recently at home in California to go to a wedding and to visit my parents. After the wedding I stayed a while to help my ever collecting Mom to tidy up the closet space in her house. I have to say I had a lot of fun. It was just great to be able to trap her in the house and laugh with her. She was in utter dismay about getting rid of each Cabbage Patch Kid, and stuffed bunny. “I shouldn’t have watched Toy Story!” She said. Bad timing- she had happened to watch both 1 & 2 the weekend before with my sisters kids. I could see her heart break each time I told her, “Mom, that one is really gross, I wouldn’t let my baby play with that doll.” And we would place it in the big white bag. I don’t know how many times I had to explain that these dolls would go to other kids who would play with them and love them and that the dolls would have new happy lives- not sitting in the corner of my old bedroom. I am so glad that my Mother taught me that everything has a spirit. Whether doll, or tree, or book. They all enwrap life.

This picture kills me. As I cleaned, my mom was by my side. When I turned around to see what my baby was doing- this was how I found him. Grammy let him sit in the swing- all bundled up- surrounded by colorful fuzzy toys that I am sure she had stuck in his mouth before she placed them on his lap so he could know the taste and smell of each creature who would be joining him on his swing. What a woman. How can you not love her?

Things I never want to forget? “In your backyard? In your stomach? In your NOSE?”
Krista: “Do you want to see jean?”
Mom: “What is a see jean?”
Dad: “She was going to tell you about the C Gene- in the genetic code.”

I love the slightly frightened look. He may have trust issues with grandma later on in life because of this!

so cute. mom is such a character.

you know when she's walking by a room to do something and the movie catches her attention and she stops and just stands there? That's what happened with Toy Story. eventually she worked her way into the room and sat down on the couch with my kids. She got very into it. She may have even cried at one point. what a gal.:)

little krew surrounded by love.

"I have been using Advanced Gain Pro for 3 months now and I must say I'm simply amazed. I really didn't think the product would have this many benefits. I really only purchased the pills to help the reliability of my erections. But to my surprise every aspect of my penis and sex life has improved. I have larger, harder erections easily, and I can really satisfy my girlfriend fully now."
